It is 1886 as Englishman Lord Langsford travels by train to San Francisco. Newly widowed, Langsford is desperate to escape his grief, demons, and life in England. As Langsford completes the last leg of his transcontinental journey, his life unexpectedly changes once again when he crosses paths with Miss Sally Baxter, a beautiful rancher who packs a pistol in her purse. Sally has made it her mission to find the men who robbed a train and killed her brother. Unfortunately, no one—not even the owners of the Southern Pacific Railroad—seem to care. Unable to resist her pleas, Langsford offers to help Sally and soon becomes entangled in a web of politics, corruption, and greed. As murder, threats, and attacks ensue that endanger both Sally and Langsford, influential men in both California and Washington, D.C. jockey for positions of power. Langsford, who finds himself oddly attracted to Sally, now must sort through criminals and politicians alike to discover the truth behind her brother’s death and prevent his own murder.
“Not only is this a fast-paced historical mystery, 1886 Ties That Bind offers commentary on the political and social issues that are still relevant today.” – Helga Schier, PhD, author and founder of With Pen and Paper
"Wasserman’s writing is atmospherically rich. Very strongly recommended." – Historical Novel Society, London, critical review of 1884 No Boundaries

My Review

1886 Ties That Bind: A Story of Politics, Graft, and Greed is a good read. At first, I was not sure how I would like it, but I was pleasantly surprised how much I did enjoy it. I was captivated with Lord Langsford from the beginning. The details and descriptions of the setting and story that surrounded him took me back in time. I had no problem reading the book all the way through in one sitting. 

I give 1886 Ties That Bind: A Story of Politics, Graft, and Greed a well deserved 5 stars and I highly recommend it.

I received this book from the author. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
